Elias Katsoulis Title: Tribute to Elias Katsoulis, A Night for Elias

Location: Theatro Vrachon – Melina Mercouri theatre in Vyrona

Start Time: 21:00

Date: 2009-09-28

In August 2008, Greece lost an important songwriter, Elias Katsoulis, but his words continue in the voices of a younger generation of Greek ballad singers. On September 28, 2009, a group of these talented singers will gather at the Vrachon Theater to pay tribute to Katsoulis. His music is poetry brought to us through beautiful, sometimes haunting melodies, and this will be a night, I am certain, where the audience will participate as much as the performers.

Featuring: Pantelis Thalassinos, Gerasimos Andreatos, Vasilis Skoulas, Melina Kana, Lena Alkaiou, Anastasia Moutsatsou and others

The Smyrna Songs, music by Pantelis Thalassinos, words by Ilias Katsoulis, two very different versions:

Melina Kana’s version – If you have a chance to go to the Vrachon Theater for this musical tribute, perhaps Thalassinos and Kana will sing this song together!

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
